The Taurus class of ship is a small frigate in the Xenian Navy. The original ship, now known as XNS Templar, was built as a schooner-rigged trading vessel, later converted to hold 4 small cannon under the crew Templars. It took part in the defense of the Templar fortress but was captured by British troops. It was sailed westward but was intercepted by Templar troops on the way, receiving heavy damage. It sank in shallow waters off the coast of warp west.

It was raised and restored under the supervision of The Xanthian Order, to become a trading vessel, but it was eventually decided to convert it fully into a 20-gun frigate, and it was sailed to Xenia for its rebuild. It is the second oldest vessel and only foreign built ship in the Xenian Navy, although heavily modified.

Plans have been drawn up to build new vessels for both the navy and commercial use due to its successful design.
